I've had sooooo much fun collaborating with Dina these last few weeks, I'm bummed to report that this is our last collaboration post (for now, anyways!). Each day that we've posted, I just couldn't wait to get over to her blog to see what she created with the same set. And let me tell you, I was WOW'd every time! Today we are both working with Penny Black 40-132 So Blessed:
In creating my card, I tried a new technique (new to me, at least!) to create the background. Using watercolor paper, I heavily misted the paper with water. Then I dabbed Distress Stains onto the wet background (Peeled Paint, Fired Brick, Wild Honey, and Broken China). Next I stamped my image and went over it to darken it even more with a Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Stamper's Big Brush Pen in 199-Black. The white portions were colored with the *new* WHITE Stamper's Big Brush Pen- this was my first time using the new marker and let me tell ya, I LUV it!
